Find more picks from the 2018 Nordstrom Anniversary Early Access Sale in my Shop Section!!
The time has arrived (can you believe it; we’re already in July?) – the one where the biggest sale of the year is just around the corner.
What-are-you-and-every-other-blogger-talking-about, you ask? Here’s the gist:
The What: The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 is when Nordstrom releases all of their (never-before-shopped) fall arrivals, goodies, swoons, and baubles, then marks them down a-lot, giving *you* a chance to shop the sale before the items hit the racks full price (and go back to their designer full prices). In other words, you have access to getting fall’s newest goodies before everyone else, at a better price than everyone else, before everyone else shops it in the fall.
The Who: To be able to shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale early (aka, this next week: July 12-19), you have to be a Nordstrom cardholder. If you aren’t a Nordstrom cardholder, becoming one is a pretty sweet deal and you can look into signing up here— or simply wait till the sale opens to the public on July 20th (forewarning: a lot of the best goodies do sell out before the sale goes public, but they do re-stock some items).
- July 12-19th is the private sale, open to cardholders only!
- July 20th-August 5th is the public sale, open to everyone.
The How: Being a loyal and long-time Nordstrom cardholder myself, I have only a whole lotta good things to say about the Nordstrom rewards program. Here’s the low-down:
1. Besides the allowance of being able to shop the Nordstrom sale *a week before everyone else*, the best perk is that you effortlessly rack up free Nordstrom dollars (did I mention effortlessly?). Every time you purchase anything in stores at Nordstrom or online (a bra, a mug, a wallet… anything), you automatically rack up points/rewards that earn you all the dollars that you can spend on anything online or in store at Nordstrom. The more points, the more free credit to shop away. 🙂
2. I’ll say it again: you get to shop the Nordstrom sale before the rest of the public. And I’ll be frank about it: the best stuff runs out fast!
